I-81 is an important facility serving goods movements on the east coast as it traverses six states. The Corridor is challenged by a lack of safe and secure truck parking opportunities presenting a challenge to the safe and efficient movement of goods. The Roundtable is intended to bring public and private sector stakeholders together to:
- Understand better why improved truck parking is critical to the safety and reliability of our highway transportation system
- Identify areas acutely affected by a lack of safe and secure truck parking opportunities.
- Consider truck parking solutions implemented in other areas around the country.
- Develop solutions suited to address truck parking shortages on the Corridor.
PMTA members are welcome and encouraged to attend to discuss issues they have had with parking in the corridor and discuss potential solutions. Please register here: https://www.i-81coalition.org/truck-roundtable.html.
